Looking for a Home Buyers Survey? Which of the 3 should you select?

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Wavertree and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Wavertree property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Wavertree property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of if buying a maisonette proximate to a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including hazardous waste disposal. Of course nobody would want to live near one (most people do live under 2km away from one). Concerns might include hazardous chemicals .

Homebuyer reports in Wavertree will consider structural issues connected with the landfill. Your legal representative will carry out environmental searches of the British Geological data sets and Liverpool Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Timber damage by insect larvae

My friend spotted signs of bugs in the attic. What can we do?

Wavertree homes are generally free of vermin, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can carry serious health risks and affect its value. An affected house may not always be easy to identify, termites are still rare in the UK, but may be present in imported timber. They are capable of almost hollowing out beams before they are discovered and can therefore put the structural integrity of a home at serious risk. Remedies to insect infestation can include professional cleaning.

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a Wavertree property and the vendor has suggested that it has been built with Beer stone. Are there any related issues that need to be investigated?

From Broadway Dark Cream Limestone to Wroxton Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Defects affecting stone-built Wavertree houses can vary, delaminated render being relatively common. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. These are employed as a decorative front, with brick or irregular walls. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified. Common guidance may include monitoring of natural wear, watching for signs of sudden or severe change.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.

If, in the course of carrying out maintenance, you need further advice, get in touch with a local mason or walling contractor. Warm Surroundings (Liverpool) Ltd, 557 Smithdown Rd, Liverpool, L15 5AF, for example, could assist.
